Join Kimberly Wilson and Mary Catherine Starr May 24 - 31, 2014 for a week-long escape focused on yoga, creativity, and mindfulness during Memorial Day weekend. We will bask in tranquility among the tropical splendor at Pura Vida, a private, gated, 8-acre mountainside estate in the Alajuela province. Here we will indulge in two daily yoga sessions (vinyasa, yin, restorative, and meditation), four art and creativity sessions (writing, art journaling, mixed media/collage, and sketching in nature), and plenty of time for naps, reading poolside, and dining on fresh, local cuisine. 

The resort is enveloped in lush, tropical gardens surrounded by coffee plantations, and includes a pool, a hot tub, and luxurious spa treatments at your fingertips. This retreat is open to late beginner to advanced students. Classes will be taught at Tranquil Space Open Flow level with variations and modifications for your body. 

INCLUDED: Ten yoga sessions, four creativity sessions, deluxe or tentalow accommodations, transport to and from the airport, a tranquility-filled goody bag, three delicious daily meals, and sensory surprises. All registrants will receive a detailed itinerary, packing list, and tips on making the experience divine.

NOT INCLUDED: Airfare, spa services, and excursions.
